Fudgy Milk Chocolate Bark with Cranberries and Almonds. Vegan glutenfree recipe - Vegan Richa (1)

Hubbs is on his 3 week home vacation! So this month is going to be all short and sweet posts, some with approximate measurements. Like todays post.:). Usually my approximations are pretty close to the real measurement.
As we all know, till about a year back, I was not fond of chocolate. The only chocolate I ate while growing upoccasionallywas milk chocolate. You couldnt get me to eat dark bitter chocolate any which way. My sister was a chocolate fan, again only soft milk chocolate though. And she was also the reason behind the occasional availability of chocolate at our home. (Chocolate was a pricey bribe item used to get kids to do stuff back then ;))
Of course, this year I have been on a Chocolate roll, esp dark delicious good chocolate. But this creation is dedicated to my lil sister. A milky soft chocolate creation.

This fudgy chocolate bark melts in your mouth like a silky delicious smooth ummmmmm. It is insane I tell ya. The cocoa butter and coconut cream, makes it so fudgy and soft, that the bark will start to melt lightly in your hands if you hold it too long. One more reason to put the whole piece in your mouth and not be able to speak for the next 5 minutes or lick your finger later 😉 You can make it into thick fudge squares too.

You can get pure food grade Cocoa butter on Amazon or health food stores like Iherb.com

Happy holidays!

    Excellent! It’s chewy versus crunchy. How do I get it to be crunchy? The thickness is the same as your picture.

    It absolutely tastes delicious btw. Will be making again tomorrow so hopefully you can give me some ideas to make it more crunchy—

    Screw this being just for the holidays! It’s June and I’m planning on making this recipe for my father for Father’s Day as I’m fairly broke this year. Bark is good all year long, especially when its hot and the chocolate melts on your fingers. MMmmm, craving chocolate, almonds and cranberries so this is absolutely perfect. I love all your recipes, old and new.


  3. Kristy

    I didn’t make any bark this year! Next year, this is soooo happening! 🙂


  4. Dani

    What about coconut butter in place of cocoa butter?


    • Richa

      Coconut butter should work fine. The taste will be slightly different, but everything else should work. 🙂


  5. Ilana

    Looks very tempting! How do you measure the cocoa butter? Do you melt it and measure 1/2 cup of the melted cocoa butter, or do you refer to butter shaves? Better yet, do you have weight measurements of it? Thanks!


    • Richa

      I melted it a bit in the microwave so it was some part melted and some solid. a 1/4 cup here and there will work fine.


  6. makali

    can coconut oil be used instead of cocoa butter?


    • Richa

      It will taste different with coconut oil. Use just a 1/4 cup oil if using.


  7. Terra

    I want to devour that whole pan!!!! I love the addition of the coffee of course:-) I really loved the pictures, they are really fun, and I want some of that rum:-) Hugs, Terra


  8. ella@lifeologia

    By the way, thanks so much for sharing this recipe at the last Potluck Party – I’ve extended it so it runs through this week also. (you’re welcome to add something new if you wish ;))

    Ps. Just wanted to remind you about the FREE recipe eBook I have – hope you grabbed a copy 😉

    Happy Holidays!

  16. Veganosaurus

    Umm I can’t speak either, because of all this droooool!


  17. Tor Ince

    I feel the same about dark chocolate! This looks so yummy, your photos are gorgeous.
    My favourite flavour combo right now is chocolate with almonds or hazelnuts, cherries and Scotch whisky – I bet this would work great!


  18. Chocolate-Covered Katie

    Gorgeous photos, Richa. And it looks delicious as well :).


  19. Jackie @ Vegan Yack Attack!

    I am loving these photos, Richa! They look gorgeous. And the bark.. Well, I never make bark, but you may be converting me with this recipe! 🙂


  20. Ashlae

    I’ve never made chocolate bark but now I’m realizing that’s a really sad thing. Looks delicious, lady! And I’m loving the coffee addition.


  21. Caitlin

    woooooo lady. this fudge bark looks spectacular. the texture and taste must be out of this world. and YAY for your husband being home for 3 weeks!!


  22. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Looks awesome Richa! Enjoy the 3 week vacation with your husband 🙂


  23. dassana

    those were the days when milk chocolate and it used to be cadbury’s diary milk brand always as a bribe item. i have to get cocoa butter soon to make these melt in the mouth barks.


  24. Kristina @ spabettie

    Mmm, this is beautiful! I love the coffee addition (I just made a batch with instant espresso granules!), and I can tell this IS insanely fudgy and rich – YUM!


  25. Nithiya

    Great minds think alike!! I was planning on making the cranberry almond bark with dark chocolate for my next post:)

  28. Chef Amber Shea

    Sometimes I feel like the only person that doesn’t love the super-dark stuff (my fave is WHITE chocolate, actually!)…glad to know I’m not alone!
    This looks yummy. Would be great with dried cherries.


    • Richa

      i love super dark stuff too. but decided to veganise my sis’s old fave ..this is incredibly delicious!


  29. The Peace Patch

    Thank you so much for this one! I love how versatile it is. I’ve got figs on hand so I may try it with figs, and I’d love to try it with a bit of Frangelico for kicks. 🙂


    • Richa

      Yes of course, some liqueur will be great in this


  30. Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes
